'Keeping Up With The Joneses' Cast: Meet Vivica Fox and others from Lifetime film
Lifetime's 'Keeping Up With The Joneses' is a three-part film series and the plot looks extremely enticing
'Keeping Up With The Joneses' is a Lifetime thriller movie series that will be released over a period of three weeks. Vivica A Fox will be leading the pack on his journey to battle threats that challenge the existence of the Jones family. Will she succeed? Let's hope so.
Vivica A Fox as Robin Jones
After the death of Theodore Jones, Robin Jones takes charge of the family's dipping financial situation. However, her moves as the new in-charge are thwarted by an unidentified adversary who's trying to beat her and the family at their own game. Fox has been a part of several Lifetime thrillers, which brings us to assume that playing Robin was a walk in the park for her. In 2021 alone, she has starred in as many as five films from 'The Wrong' franchise: 'The Wrong Valentine', 'The Wrong Prince Charming', 'The Wrong Mr Right', 'The Wrong Fiancé' and 'The Wrong Real Estate Agent'.
Ted McGinley as Webb
Ted McGinley's role is unclear at this point but we are guessing he is an integral part of the three-part film series, given he is in all of them. Over the last few years, he has featured in a few TV movies and shows, of which 'The Baxters' and 'No Good Nick' were the popular ones. He also landed a voice role in 'Transformers: Robots in Disguise' as Denny Clay, the Ship Captain.
Arie Thompson as Pam Jones
Arie Thompson plays one of Robin's stepdaughters and is the cold and calculating CEO in the film. This will be Thompson and Fox's second film this year, which means they already share a workplace relationship. How that translates into effortless onscreen chemistry is something we'll have to wait and watch. In 2019, Thompson starred in 'Once Upon a Lifetime' and 'Doctor Death'.
Ciarra Carter as Carrie Jones
Carrie Carter serves as the conscience of the family. She oversees the charitable endeavors, which makes her one of the few trusted members. According to IMDb, she will be next seen in 'The Colony', 'The Truth', 'Exceptional Beings' and 'Blending Christmas'. Like Thompson, she too shares a camaraderie with Fox as they have been part of two 'Wrong' films: 'The Wrong Fiancé' and 'The Wrong Real Estate Agent'.
Jasmine Aivaliotis as Tara Jones
Jasmine Aivaliotis is playing a complicated role in this film. Although she is a high-schooler, Tara is easily the most cunning and scheming one in the family. Does she get in Robin's way? Only time will tell. In 2021, Aivaliotis played Cheryl in 'Deceived by My Mother-In-Law', a TV movie, and Heather in 'The Wrong Prince Charming'. She was also Tatia in mini TV series 'Not How It Goes'.
Shellie Sterling as Kayla Jones
Kayla could easily be the least-bothered one, given how much of a party girl she is. But, maybe she has a life beyond the all-nighters she pulls and that could pose as a problem for Robin. Let's wait and watch. Sterling was last seen in 'A Party Gone Wrong' and TV series 'Snowfall'.
The official synopsis reads that even though the stepdaughters are coming into their own and Robin trying her best to tackle the crisis, the family is hit by an unprecedented challenge when someone comes after the family "using threats, blackmail, and even murder, whoever it is will stop at nothing to destroy the family and everything they’ve built."
'Keeping Up For the Joneses' will premiere on July 8, Thursday, at 8/7c. The remaining two will air on LMN for two consecutive Thursdays. For more information, check your local listings.
